Took this thing for a spin yesterday finally. Have a couple of issues yet, but she is driveable enough. The steering wheel is 90* out and she still doesn't like to idle in gear. Other than that it runs smooth, and feels like there is a bit more power available since the motor is no longer lifting itself off the frame.
New wheels and tires should be on Thursday, and as long as I get my pool painted tomorrow I can take out the front seats and carpet and put a new floor in it. I also need to pop a dent out of the drivers door and lube all of the windows. That and a little bit more sticker removal and we should actually be able to get around at the dunes this weekend.
